Karate in Derby, Somerset and Northampton
The Association of Shotokan Karate Clubs (ASKC), is a family orientated shotokan karate association, which has been running since January 2013. The ASKC are affiliated Nationally, to the English Karate Federation, the only karate governing body recognised but the International Olympic Committee.
We have three senior karate Instructors all of which are grade registered nationally with the English Karate Federation, fully insured and DBS checked. All three Instructors have been training in shotokan karate for at least 18 years.
